. candidate john rizzo, who could not join us tonight said in response to the survey that his "top policy objective was better management of the city." if the city's growing liabilities outpace revenue, what poorly managed programs could be reformed or eliminated to help balance the city's budget. we would like to hear answers from mr. johnson, miss davis and miss olague. >> i will give you two examples of where he i would start to look. one we had with regard to the mta a major problem with work orders and waste and inefficiencies and we see other agencies basically cannibalizing muni. muni buss are being fixed with plastic bags and duct-tape. that kind of waste and inefficiency should be cut out of the system immediately. we need to look at our upper management fee schedules, including the highest paid police chief and some of the highest paid top brass at the police department. so i would start to look at our master fee schedules at the upper management levels where we can save some money. >> thank you. miss johnson? >> i agree with that, the sfmta is one of the areas where we found th

commission may delegate to the executive directors as being proposed? >> john gibner, city attorney. in the document that was circulated i believe it's on page 13. lines 2 and 3. the ordinance authorizes the commission to delegate it any of its duties to the executive director. there is no limitation in that authority other than the subsequent section that requires that the executive director follow the commission's policy directions on collective bargaining matters. >> does that mean that except for that limitation on collective bargaining matters that you could have a situation where the commission could delegate all of its authority to an executive director to decide as they deem fit? >> that is right that. is what the ordinance would allow currently. >> thank you very much for that clarification. i wanted to clarify that, because i haven't seen that level of expansive language delegating that much power to one individual and actually, mr. gibner, under the ordinance right now, who appoints the executive director? >> colleagues i look forward to hearing any other comments, but i personal
